  • Published on May 28, 2024
  • We gave interior designers Joy Moyler, Darren Jett, and Noz Nozawa a photo of the same dated 90s living-then asked each of them to transform the space in their particular style, however they pleased with no restrictions. Three artists, one canvas, each bringing something different to the space. Which updated living room would you bring into the 21st century?

    Darren made a living room that looks identical to my now deceased heavy smoker Orange County glamma’s (glam grandma) bedroom with the shiny dark walls and cheetah print carpet. it’s nostalgic for me but i can smell the second hand smoke in this space. It’s also funny he keeps saying “bring it to modern day” when it actually is bringing it back lol

    I like to think of these solutions as conceptual art as opposed to real designs for real people.

    Surprisingly I love Noz's room the most this time :). It feels so fun.. and so practical that you can still watch TV if you want to and have friends over.. but that couch near the fireplace seems like a burn hazard... Joy's the closest to what I have today except only one person can watch the TV with a stiff neck. Darren's is stunning but the room looks like a bar lounge.... my place had that vibe when I moved in, and I gutted out the whole living room walls as it was collecting too much dust (and second hand smoke odor).

    The only design approach I truly enjoyed was Darren's. His room created an experience; the other two rooms were boring. He created a space that you would see in a movie, something that you think is not practical but in reality it is. The other rooms are stuff you see everywhere. Joy and Noz just put random stuff into their rooms and put some fancy words into their description but really what you have is a chicken cage with overpriced furniture with Joy's room and a rug with holes in it and an impractical bookcase with Noz's design.

    Noz lost me with that wrap around skirted sofa. I wasn’t keen on Joy’s fireplace and over large bureaus but at least she had the design sense to move the couch. Darren’s made the room look wider and larger but I think he ‘cheated’ a bit by extending the room. This room would look less long and narrow if the main seating faced the fireplace wall.x

The classical aspects are quite 'proper' and remind me of fancy plates and dishes for tea, and then you get a smattering of the eclectic, seemingly out-of-place bright, graphic accents throughout.

    The OGs! Automatic like.
    Noz - Quirky as always. if the sofa covers were plain, I actually don't mind the craziness of the rest. Plus, I love dogs.
    Darren - That's more like some villain's hidden bar, not a living room. But it's totally him.
    Joy - The most livable although i would've liked it if it was lighter.

    I wouldn’t let Noz to decorate (in my opinion is to ruin) my house even she does that for free 😅 I mean, so far I watched like 3-4 times, not liking anything she’s done. She seems very nice person though, love her personality. She is very bright, energetic and optimistic.
    I didn’t like any of them much but Darren made the room look rich, I would like it more without that animal print floors. That pattern makes house look messy and cheap. Joy’s decor is also nice but that dog cage walls. Seriosly, that really looks bad.

    Let’s address moody. Not a fan of dark or brown. The mood I want in a living room is calm and happy in every season. The blue room comes close to the lightness and color palette but it’s totally crazy maximalist. The leopard print carpet room is a bit too glam and dark for a summer day flooding the room with natural light. The wallpaper on the third room paired with the graphic rug and neutral colors made me think of a 60s waiting room at Sterling Cooper.
    So, nice things in each room but none of them are really ringing my bell. If I had to choose, I’d go with the blue chintz room and do a Coco Chanel removing about half of the accessories, especially that silly “HOT” sign. She could lose her interior designer card for using literal word art.

None of these really feel comfortable or relaxing to me; shockingly, I don't want to live inside a glass-lined cage or a chocolate bar or a Delft gift box.

  • @ednatucker5445
    @ednatucker5445 4 months ago +1

    All the designers did think "outside the box." (Neither design tickled my personal fancy). Incorporating new products, colors and materials are an amazing decorating feat. All of the designers accomplished the "soul" of their designs, but I think Joy "calmly" decorated for 21st century update.

  • @jennypai3763

    i absolutely LOVE Noz's design! it's so cute! I wasn't too into that particular fireplace screen, but I like the humor aspect of it. I also like Darren's design, but I think it's trend for me that I can't get into his designs at first because of all the dark colors, but he would later add something that eventually bring me into it. Like for this design, I didn't feel it until he added the white sofa. he lost me again at the curtain at the entrance of the room, but the coffee table and the plant brought it back again. I like the full glass door in Joy's design, I love natural light, but not into the pieces she chose. But very creative for all of them

  • @joyatesting5979
    @joyatesting5979 5 months ago

    Please, please keep using Joy! She's one of the few designers that I think truly thinks about the actual space and what realistically works... versus the (ahem) designers that just constantly use checkerboard (so dated...) and dream up wildly expensive remodels that no normal person/New Yorker would be able to afford!
